SHAFT is producing the upcoming adaptation of March Comes Like a Lion.
That's the problem isn't it? You can't interfere otherwise you simply make things worse. All you can do is idly watch by for the most part until it resolves itself. Otherwise, change schools.
You can invite their families to dinner to sort things out, get them a little drunk and have them start wagering on shogi matches against you, and then have them in crippling debt and hold it over them whenever their kids do anything.
Guys, again, stop the shitflinging. If you want to say Shaft is a good or bad choice, do it in context and with your own thoughts, instead of throwing around stock arguments. Whoever keeps posting the "typical Shaft slideshow" shit, you're making it worse.
I like Shaft in general, but I'm skeptical at best about their ability to do this well. Umino said she specifically requested Shinbo/Shaft, so I don't really know what's up.
Remember when Shaft was supposed to animate an original anime written by Nisio-
Made me wonder if Okitegami was that title and something went wrong.
I have no idea why anyone should animate original material.
this overdrawn manga? all it has going for it the ridiculous detail on mundane things and no interesting story or believable characters, have fun animating that
>the threads are already shit
For fucks sake, this series doesn't deserve this treatment
>How would you help Hina in regards to her being bullied at school?
Can't wait to see them do picture related.
The bullying arc will cause a shitstorm on /a/ for various reason.
I don't think there will be any end to the studio complaining until we get a PV, at the earliest. It should be expected, SHAFT is far from the first studio people would have liked see adapt this.
Still, it's not like there's anything we can do. All that can be done now is hope for the best; I've said as much in another thread but I believe Shinbo will do a good job on certain aspects of the narrative, it's just a question on how well the drama will be handled.
It's an ad for the manga. From what I understand, it's just praises from various japanese authors.
Hiro Arakawa (Hiroshi Kamiya)
Banana Yoshimoto (Yuichi Nakamura)
Hiroshi Mori (Hiroki Yasumoto)
Mitsuyo Kakuta (Michiko Neya)
Tsujimura Mizuki (Mikako Takahashi)
NisiOisiN (Sugita Tomokazu)
Good drama, likable characters, beautiful art.
This. What's important is that it's SHAFT, not anything to do with the series. This is exactly what fans of the franchise are worried about, that's it's going to be all about SHAFT and not the franchise they liked and low and behold. The mix of fans of the manga who care about the property itself and mouthbreathing angry shitposting SHAFTgatari fanboys who care about SHAFT style is going to be a site to behold.
Can't wait for Shaft doing justice to those character designs.
>Shaft producing March Comes Like a Lion
>KyoAni producing an echhi battle harem show in Myriad Colors
Have the magnetic poles shifted or something?
How will Shaft manage to animate something if they can't rely on fanservice?
>Random cuts and camera angles: The Studio
Can someone please tell Shimbo to stop scrambling the storyboards?
>Shinbo directs pretty much every Shaft anime right?
Only people who don't do research think this.
Shinbo's been dead for years, expect Miyamoto or Tatsuwa to be the real director of this unless they just get a new person entirely.
Shaft knows how to adapt artstyles, I doubt they'll change it
That looks more fit to KyoAni. I doubt SHAFT would even have the decency to draw those clothes by hand.
Otoyomegatari would look flat and digitized as hell under SHAFT. Just look at what they usually do with clothes with patterns.
hey I'm Japanese.
You faggot fuckin shit crap prostate gaijins understand Shogi?
Holy shit after exclusively adapting garbage like Denpa Onna, Sasami-san, Nisekoi, Mekakucity, Graffiti, and milking Monogatari and Madoka, they're finally adapting something half decent
It better fucking be Shafty as fuck, their aitsy visual style is perfection
That is the case in other countries but japs are merciless in bullying.
I would make a big deal of it or threaten to do so to school administration, since bringing things to a public light is a big no-no in japan.
hey I'm Japanese.
You faggot fuckin shit crap prostate gaijins understand shogi?
Maybe because those sections are for the most part straight? Check the folds here idiot where it matters.
It doesn't to me, but let's go back for a second, you're saying that an overly complex pattern like that would look way better as a static texture overexposed in the character than if it actually was handrawn and animated? Not only that but you're saying it will look good because it happens some times in the manga, a medium with static images, and you suppose it will translate well when it gets animated? Are SHAFT apologists really this dumb?
Overly complicated pattern is first a high invest low return thing when trying to animate it, so anime designs are general simplified as hell.
But even if the studio gets all the time and money it needs. Animating such complex pattern would require high animation skills and would look jarring because you will see every little uneven animation frame.
It obviously wouldn't look nearly as detailed and requires good animators, but this is why you don't have SHAFT do it. I suggested KyoAni because you know they put effort into these kind of things, hell they even hired an animator specifically for the water effects in Free.
What you want is basically this, and it would be an insult to the author, those clothes are not just for show, they're an integral part the series.
Shaft isn't my first choice, but I'd prefer them to KyoAni, honestly. I see this art and paneling working much better with the flatness of most of their stuff than with KyoAni's recent focus on implying depth with both their designs and digital effects. My misgivings with Shaft here are more about their scene direction than the art.
Let's be fucking real here, when didn't Shaft nail the presentation CGI not included?
Let it be the artstyles themselves like SZS, Hidamari, Sasami-san or the atmosphere like in Madoka or Bake, they're always spot on
There's a first time for everything
So did I, but apparently he's director on Amanchu, where I thought he was just assistant to Sato, so I guess that was never going to happen.
>he doesn't want Otoyomegatari done by Gonzo in Gankutsuou style
This scene by SHAFT?
I don't know, it will probably be a static, frontal, wide shot of the two in an empty room with pillows falling down, said pillows' textures would probably be superimposed like this >>135762344 There will be no perspective and the overall color of the scene would be wither analogous or monochromatic. I can also see face close up galore you know to not bore the viewer with such a simplistic composition.
Something like this https://u.pomf.is/kdrfxs.webm , if you still can't visualize it just watch any SHAFT anime since 2007.
Just caught up to the scanlations today. My God this is so much better than Honey & Clover. Not a single character is an annoying piece of shit that can be explained in a single sentence like H&C.
If Shinbou is actually directing this, I have plenty of hope. But if he's just gonna be Chief Director as usual then I'm a little afraid of who he'll let direct.
yes. I read it for the tsume-shogi problems. There was a nice problem at the end of one of the Eotama episodes, too.
Same with Shion on Ou. The last few episodes/chapters were a real pro game.
But playing shogi in the west is suffering. I can never find an opponent, even at the Go club.
I know its monthly that's why I'm wondering? If it was weekly that would mean BnHA beat it only by a year or two but this shit been out for a minute. It should of at least had a anime by the fifth year, you lie in April got one in like a year.
I don't know what kind of answer you want, some things just take longer. BnHA is on the shorter side, this is on the longer side. It's not like there's a formula for what will get an anime when.
You just ask bunch of bet/a/s on whether they'll help a bullied f̶r̶i̶e̶n̶d̶ classmate.
Of course, their answer would be watch from afar hoping it'll resolved itself.
because... you know.. it'll be bad if we interfere... why don't you change school or something, just... leave me out of it.
There's a loli, a jk, and a onee-san. One for everybody i guess.
not beating shounen, but among top 30 in the first half of 2015 (no.28)
and apparently have at least once be in no.1 best selling manga in weekly count.
The manga is written by famous author who have won various awards from her previous work.
And this sangatsu no lion have also won several awards including a very prestigious Grand Prize of Osamu Tezuka Cultural Award.
Among it's previous winner of that very award is vagabond, monster, pluto, helter skelter, historie, and kingdom.
The manga might not be for everybody but considering the sales, awards and not to mention the story and artstyle wasn't that hard to animate (direction close to "your lie in april"), it'll be no brainer for Shaft to pick this.
She is tired of the forgettable adaptation which was Honey & Clover. That's the problem with the mass produced stuff by Madhouse, IG or JC Staff.
I still remember how flat and boring Emma looked like (Studio Pierrot) while the manga was visual on par with Otoyomegatari.
It also helps that Shaft is famous with working close to the original creator, so stuff like telling the creator to fuck off in public will not happen.
Why the fuck would they choose a bottom of the barrel studio like Shaft to animate this? Why not Production I.G. or Madhouse. Hell, if they went for the whacky "unique" factor, why not Trigger?
No, the direction, design adaptation, color palette, and OST were all great, and none of that was in any way generic or pushed-out-the-door like you seem to be implying with the mass-production comment.
The hell are you talking about? The directing was great. The directing/mise en scene and the voice acting are the single two elements that carried that show, as a show. As for story? It was a drama slice of life mix -- all about the characters, not story. Did you even watch the damn thing?
Its only weak point was the actual animation, which was pretty limited most of the time.
Honey & Clover had also that early digital coloring and composition touch.
Compared to the Noitamina shows aired at the time it was indeed one of the visual weakest anime.
Only Moyasimon, Toshokan Sensō and Antique Bakery were weaker.
I think the music usage was actually a big part of it. It accentuated the emotion in a lot of pretty low-key scenes. I still remember the early part of the S1 ED that would come in early and make me feel like "That's just the way it goes."
Both manga and anime is good and pretty popular. Personally manga ver still better tough.
I thought A1 (shigatsu) or IG (Sawako) will eventually pick up this series.
Tough it'll be interesting to see whether shaft could get out from Monogatari artstyle or they'll just lazily goes monogatari-animation with it.
especially many scene of this manga is self-reflection monologue where it easily adapted to monogatari style monologue.
I disagree. The only things with visual styles that really stand above it are Mononoke and maybe the Kitaro remake, but I haven't seen that in ages. Hataraki Man was nothing visually, Nodame and H&C have pretty similar aesthetics, and I just don't like Paradise Kiss' style at all.
Don't even go there brah.
